Bernolákovo (original: Ceklís 1920-1948; Hungarian: Cseklész had 4477
inhabitants in the 1990 census). Most Hungarians migrated in 1948 (Hungarian-Slovakian
population exchange). The town was in the Pozsony (in Slovakian Prešporok)
County of the Kingdom of Hungary till 1919/1920 (Czechoslovakian occupation
/ Treaty of Trianon). 1920-1938 part of Czechoslovakia, 1938-1944 part
of Hungary (after the Decision of Vienna). The Treaty of Paris (1947) reallocated
it to Czechoslovakia. Ceklís got the new name in 1948: Bernolákovo. Antonín
Bernolák (1762-1813) was born in Alsókubin/Dolný Kubín; he was an Slovakian
linguistic. Here is the Esterházy Palace (1714-1720).
